I started with the Alclad black gloss base coat on my ironman kit and got a nasty surprise. I have not done anything to the paint. Shake well and just pour and shoot, but then I noticed sputtering on my airbrush while shooting and when the first bit of paint was done I looked in my airbrush cup and found particles lying there, which clogged up my airbrush nozzle. (See photo) I decided since I poured it to my airbrush from the bottle to pick some up with a pipet. I saw it was full of particles which stuck to the side of the pipet.(See second photo) Surely this can not be normal ? Everything I read about using Alclad indicated it could and should be used directly from the bottle. I did not try to thin it or nothing. Do I have a dud bottle here ? Suffice it to say I have to sand down the leg piece again I tried to base coat and do over.
